Brian,
 
For the first time in Valdelinares at 24.3.1996 I saw many skiers but no N.eugeniae. At 25.3.2000 I tried it again and found masses of daffodils  in full flower.

    Theo,
    I’m envious of your second attempt. Thanks for the picture – that’s about how I visualise N. eugeniae with the sturdy short stems.
    We didn’t even get as far as the skiers last year almost blizzard conditions – the only compensation was a close up look at a flock/clutch/gaggle (or whatever) of vultures wandering on the road in front of us – they seemed too cold to fly  – or perhaps there was not much point as visibility was so poor.
    Anyway, what is the plural word for a lot of vultures – who can come up with the funniest suggestion  – as well as the true answer.? How about a Volcano – that’s about how they normally erupt into the skies when disturbed.

    How about a “colony” of vultures, I think that is the correct term. (now I read Brian’s post, not the ones after it so I wouldn’t cheat) LOL
